Game Load Time Testing
To test game load times we used the benchmark for the game title Final Fantasy XIV: Shadowbringers that was released in July 2019. We bumped up the resolution from 1080P to 1440P, but other than that we left all the settings at their stock values. Pretty much every SSD on the market today claims to be aimed at gamers, so this test shows you how the drives we tested perform on an actual game title in a series that every gamer has heard of.
Benchmark Results: When it comes to game load times the performance numbers are pretty close to one another. There is less than a 1.5 second difference between the slowest and fastest drive in the chart above. The Samsung 980 PRO 2TB performance on this benchmark left a bit to be desired, but it was by no means bad.
